A Comparative Study Among Several Imaging Methods for the Detection of Primary and Metastatic Sites of GEP-NETs. Abstract #1031

Introduction: GEP-NETs staging are essential for any therapeutic manipulation
Aim(s): To evaluate the sensitivity of several imaging methods in detection of GEP-NETs and their metastases
Materials and methods: 62 patients (48 confirmed GEP-NETs/14 suspected disease) were enrolled. All were investigated for primary and metastatic sites with somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS), chest –X ray, upper abdominal US, chest CT and upper and lower abdominal CT

#2798 Risk of Pre-Operative Understaging of Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumors at Conventional Imaging: When Surgery Becomes the First Choice
Introduction: Duodenal neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) are heterogeneous tumors that can exhibit aggressive behavior, with loco-regional nodes and distant metastases. Pre-treatment staging is the basis for planning either surgical or endoscopic treatment.

#2939 Prognostic Evaluation for Gastroenteropancreatic NEC: AJCC or ENETS Staging Classification or Others?
Introduction: For poorly-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (GEP-NEC), American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) recommends to use a classification different from that for well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor. However, this is not adopted by European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) staging classification.

#2935 Prior Surgical Resection and Ga-68-DOTANOC PET/CT Imaging-Based Parameters: Do These Impact Outcomes in Grade II Gastroentero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs)
Introduction: Grade 2 GEP-NETs have inherent tumor heterogeneity seen with positive expression of somatostatin (SSTR) and glucose (GLUT) receptors. Prior surgical resection and imaging parameters on Ga-68 DOTANOC PET/C are well-established variable impacting prognosis in well-differentiated grade 1 NETs. Since the degree of differentiation is variable in Grade 2 NETs, these parameters have not been studied.
